Mastiff Rescue of Florida, Inc.(MRF) was formed to help provide needy mastiffs with a second chance for a home and family. MRF strives to prevent cruelty to Mastiffs and to place cruelty cases, stray or abandoned Mastiffs in adoptive homes which will provide a high level of care. We may also assist Mastiff owners who can no longer provide a home for their dog. We are an all volunteer rescue that works to find forever homes and to educate the public about these gentle giants.
A grant from Grey Muzzle helps with the "Oldies but Goodies" program to provide medical care for adoptable dogs. Senior dogs can arrive into their rescue as owner surrenders, abandonment, abuse, puppy mill seizures, shelter drops, etc. and all require medical work up and heartworm prevention - many require medical treatments.
All rescued senior dogs live in a safe loving environment with MRF dedicated fosters. One volunteer states all dogs should “die in the arms of love with fried chicken on their breath.”
